Zines, D.I.Y. Publishing, and Queer Histories

October 22nd, 2pm-6pm. Registration form in bio. Open to anyone identifying as 2SLGBTQIA+ and between the ages of 18-25.

In this educational and creative program presented in partnership by the Youth Project and the Anchor Archive Zine Library, participants will be introduced and oriented to the Anchor Archive’s amazing zine collection of over 7,000 zines produced locally and across the globe. Maury of the Anchor Archive and Brody of The Youth Project will facilitate an educational session on the history of zines and their significance in queer, trans, and 2SLGBTQIA+ politics, cultures, and histories. We’ll discuss and read zines about trans healthcare, intersex activism, prison abolition, feminism, and more. We’ll think about zines as catalysts for conversation and action, and as important spaces aside from mainstream print publishing and digital publishing on social media. We’ll collaboratively create a zine about issues important to us and use DIY print as a way to facilitate community connection and collective action.

RadStorm space access guide is available in our linktree! Masks are mandatory at all Youth Project programs. You can reach Brody at brody@youthproject.ns.ca with any questions or concerns.
